The Beaufort Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) recently welcomed Elizabeth Millen, Editor of Pink Magazine, to tell of the local publication’s purpose, history, and target within the Beaufort County area. AAUW members wore their pink STEM tee shirts to tie together the magazine title to their annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) activities designed to promote careers in those areas. The meeting was held at the First Presbyterian Church in Beaufort.
The next meeting of the Beaufort Branch of AAUW will be held again at the First Presbyterian Church’s Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 22. Audiologist Dr. Meg Kalady will enlighten those attending with her address, “How Your Hearing Can Be an Insight into Your Health.”
A catered dinner prepared by Debbi Covington will begin the evening starting at 6 p.m. Dr. Kalady’s presentation immediately follows. Reservations may be made by calling 843-838-2665. All women and men are welcome.
AAUW strives to create societal change through non-partisan advocacy on issues impacting women and girls. Each year the Beaufort Branch of AAUW awards a scholarship to help a non-traditional student at one of our local colleges.
